While some have compared the concept to ever so popular Eataly, the two are definitely not cut from the same cloth. Visitors to Latinicity are there to eat and embrace a multi-sensory experience through the 10 innovative kitchens, tapas restaurant, coffee café and full bar.

Brought to you by world-renowned Chef Richard Sandoval, Latinicity buzzes with delicious twists on quality Latin street food, such as croquettes de bacalao fritters — filled with hot, creamy cod brandade, resembling a scrumptious mozzarella sticks — dipped in saffron aioli, layering the palette in indulgence without heaviness. From the seafood counter, visitors savor smoked swordfish dip blending a little tang and a little spice in a hefty portion; or churrasco medallions dressed in superb-tasting chimichurri; or enjoy a large 8-ounce steak, resembling those found in a traditional Colombian steakhouse.
